  1. Lol found at 4:15 AM when no 1 is awake, yess!! I hope its less than $500, but looks impressive. I only hope Windows can live up to the buzz surrounding this. I want to buy a tablet, an iPad has been tempting me for SO long, but i dont want to buy this and end up disappointed…

    I’ll be using for eBooks for college, writing notes with stylus or if i HAVE to type (OneNote for Win8?), and also looking at powerpoints. Can iPad do all of this as well?

  2. “..microSDXC card slot for memory expansion up to 32GB…”

    Is the 32GB a machine limitation or a mis-statement? Why then a microSDXC card slot as there are 32GB Class 10 microSD cards on the market and they are cheap. I would hope it will handle any size mirocSDXC up to 2TB.
